Practice (Mirrored), 2019



Practice (Mirrored) is a series of photographs capturing young women dancing, who were contacted through their individual YouTube Channels and dance classes in London. Each of them was asked to choreograph a sequence of dance moves to a pop song of their choice in a rehearsal studio. I photographed their reflections in a mirror as they practiced their choreography. By focusing on gesture, gaze and the representation of pop idol performance, my project explores how the dancing body is consumed as a spectacle in popular culture and how it triggers a mimetic desire.
